Bey+Gaga= Video Phone????

This whole week the rumor mill has been spinning with rumors of two of the music game’s fiercest kitties; Beyonce and Lady Gaga coming together and finally bringing one of my fave tracks, “Video Phone” to life! According to MTV, the “Video Phone” clip was shot last weekend in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighbourhood, by famous director Hype Williams.
I already love this song, so I can’t wait to see what they come up with! Can you imagine the crazy fashion designs we’ll see in this?! I’m picturing sequins, lots of feathers, bright colors, even dark colors actually, crazy shoes, bold and sculpted pieces… oh and leotards!! What do you guys think?

Tomboy… From the Runway to the Sidewalk!

You don’t need a high fashion magazine to notice or admire one of this year’s most popular trends; the masculine inspired “Tomboy” look. aka “the boyfriend” look or Tomboy chic 🙂 


Just to clarify; I am NOT referring to wearing your old gray sweats, and “kicks” or “chucks” whatever you wanna call them. I’ve seen this look everywhere! And can’t believe that women are still dressing like this in this day and age… there’s tonnes of ways to dress down without DRESSING DOWN! (even on PMS days!!)
Anyway, the times of gender-specific clothes are loooong gone! Yay!

These days Women/Ladies/Girls are rocking short edgy cuts, along with the oversized “boyfriend” shirts, maybe a pair of figure flattering leggings/skinny jeans, and of course a classic pair of ballerina flats, or converse.
For the women who swear by the stiletto (not-so-tall women in particular), I totally understand where you’re coming from. I too am quite short, so the stilettos are always my first pick! That, and flat shoes make me feel EXTRA short soo… No. But don’t you just LOVE the Tomboy look?! I simply replace the chucks with heels! And I’m good to go. In the warmer months, I might occasionally throw on a pair of gladiators 🙂

r.i.p Farrah…

I am by NO MEANS suggesting you ditch your LBD. NEVER.


They used to say it’s a man’s world, but we’ve since proven them wrong, so I say it’s time for you to play round with some masculine inspired pieces!
With just a few items, you can achieve a variety of masculine inspired looks, but still maintain your sexy 🙂

Blazer + Tank top/Tee+ High waisted Skinnies+ Cute pair of booties!
Tank top+ Boyfriend Jeans+ Cute ballerina slippers

or…
Boyfriend Shirt+ Leggings + Gladiators
Boyfriend Shirt + Cute Denim shorts+ Cute pair of slouched suede boots

or…

Form fitting pant suit with a killer pair of heels!
Here are some fun ways to accessorise that tomboy swag: Fedoras! Cute studded earrings, a Cluster of bangles, whatever you like!All the above + cute clutch/the “big” bag… if you’re not in the purses stage your backpack will do!

I heart Polyvore!

This form of “Masculine” dressing is definitely not something new; Back in the day, icons like Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich glamorously rocked tailored suits, ties, bow-ties you name it! We’ve seen this look come in and out of fashion, but it has definitely made it’s mark in the fashion world this year.




Tomboy

Menswear-worn-as-womenswear often brings up questions about sexuality, gender and equality, and of course social shifts. Tomboys are often associated with lesbianism; and even though there have been quite a few tomboys who’ve later revealed their lesbian identity in their adult years; there is no direct connection between a girl who prefers football and her sexual orientation.
When YSL launched Le Smoking Tuxedo suits for women back in 1996; TONNES of men were upset, as they felt the tuxedos “empowered” women. Can we say ridiculous??? The funny thing is that they weren’t even ashamed to say silly sh*t like this.
Then came the shoulder pads… When fashion desiger Elsa Schiaparelli in her collection in 1931, but they soon lost their appeal. In the 80s, shoulder pads began appearing in ladies evening wear: peplums, batwing sleeves etc. This time they were used to help define a woman’s silhouette, as well as give the visual illusion of strength; helping her gain recognition in the masculine driven Corporate world.. a fashionable way of “smashing the glass ceiling.” 
Soon people started noticing more celebrities donning shoulder padded dresses, blouses etc… y’all remember Dynasty? However they quickly lost their appeal in the 90s, as it was shunned by the young and fashion conscious lol… but it seems that their back on the fashion scene…

tomboy!

So are we for or against Tomboy Chic?

muah!

Doggy Halloween

It’s almost be 4 years since I bought Lia her first little bunny costume for Halloween which she hated.  Last year, I thought it would be funny to dress Jacob up as a French Maid. LOL only for 5 minutes.
So since then dressing up Jacob for Halloween is never my priority but I was searching online and BHAHAHAHA is all i have to say!

HeyDoYou goes Brazen!

Brazen Hussy Spring/Summer 2010

Last night we attended the Brazen Hussy Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Show!
Despite the ridiculously COLD weather, Torontonians still came out to support the dynamic duo behind Brazen Hussy; Michele and Kathleen. *two thumbs up T.O*
There was a lot of excitement in the room, drinking, laughing, and of course posing for those photographs! *guilty lol*. DJ Lissa Monet set the tone, while people mixed and mingled, anxiously awaiting the start of the show.
I was happy to put my wine glass down, and get to clicking!
The is what we were treated to…

“it’s very Michelle Obama”– overheard at the show! love it!

Everybody was definitely happy with the collection; you could tell by the ooohs and aaahs and especially by the final applause that followed when Michele and Kathleen stepped out *tear*. Well Done Ladies!
